Yury Petrovich Artyukhin was a Soviet Russian cosmonaut and engineer who made a single flight into space.
Artyukhin graduated from the Soviet Air Force Institute with a doctorate in engineering, specialising in military communication systems. He was selected for the space programme in 1963 and would have flown on the Voskhod 3 mission had it not been cancelled. He made his single flight on Soyuz 14 in 1974, where his area of expertise was presumably put to good use.After flight, he was made a Hero of the Soviet Union.
He left the space programme in 1982 and held various positions in space-related fields. Most notably, he was involved in the development of the Soviet space shuttle Buran and in cosmonaut training.
He died after a long battle with cancer.
